Loamy and clayey soils of coastal flats with naturally high groundwater (21)

« 20 Soilscapes 22 »

Texture: Loamy and clayey
Drainage: Naturally wet
Fertility: Lime-rich to moderate
Land Cover: Arable some grassland
Habitats: Wet brackish coastal flood meadows
Topsoil Carbon: Medium
Mostly Drains To: Local groundwater
Water Protection Issues: Soils are mostly drained. Shallow groundwater and marginal ditches to most fields mean that the water resource is vulnerable to pollution from nutrients, pesticides and wastes applied to the land
General Cropping Guidance: Lighter soils support a wide range of crops and are highly productive as they contain much available water and are stoneless and flat. Heavier soils are less easily worked and favour grass
